So is it definitive that it would be beneficial when making flacs to upsample to 24/96.
The hifiman HD 802 or something says it plays flac files back through its DAC, decoding them into 24/96.
If you were to use this feature would you want flacs that were compressed at that level or flacs that were at CD quality. Many of these discussions I've been reading online
end with a consensus that its best to capture CD-audio in its original resolution and rate. This thread ends quite different and I'm wondering if you guys could clarify, I find this
issue fascinating, and have also wondered weather or not the 802 would be a desirable product. If not for flacs at 24/96 it sounds like playing .wavs back sounds amazing and would
be such a great source of the audio one listens to.
Thanks, like the tread.....still on EAC, curious about dbpowerAMPs flac compression.
So I've bought dBpoweramp. So I should use the two DSPs recommended? The high def cd plug in just detects if the cd can be ripped at a higher rate and will give you consistent 24 bit flacs as outputs? Or .wavs if not compressing? Curious..with EAC it was all about command line switches, I like this new program.
